Bachelor of the Week: Durango!

You guys!

Once again, we’ve been a little light on posts (MomFOD’s off galavanting in another state. Again.) However, we couldn’t skip the Bachelor of the Week!

Meet Durango.

The one, the only Durango!!!

The one, the only Durango!!!

 

This little dude was trapped during a TNR program in Chicago. At the time, he was skinny and rather sick. You see, Durango had broken a tooth. No!  This caused an abscess in his tiny sinuses and required dental surgery. Since then, The Big D (that’s what I call him) has put on lots (and lots) of weight and is now a lovable, huggable big old orange man looking for the right love to sweep him off his paws.

Durango likes to watch TV, snuggle, sit on the couch, and eat. However, he can’t eat everything because he’s a bit, shall we say, sensitive and requires a limited ingredient diet. A list will be provided to you upon adoption. A secret list. Because Durango wants to have a mysterious side, too. If you want to drink the milk, you have to buy the cow, know what I mean? (Just as a heads up, I’m pretty sure “milk” is on the list.)

Eh hem. Anyway, if you’d like to meet Durango and find out more about his dietary habits, you can contact On Angels’ Wings rescue in Crystal Lake, IL. Hurry! Durango is hungry and his favorite TV show is about to come on!

Hanging out, up close and upside down. You know, the usual.

PS. Durango’s a little short on photos, so he’s hoping you’d take a lot of him as soon as he moves in to your house.

 

Bachelor of the Week: Bertie!

Today we have a big, giant, orange man cat who fears nothing and no one!

Meet Bertie. He’s fluffy and looks like a dreamsicle. In fact, I would personally love to lick him but I’m not allowed back into Tree House. Anyway, Bertie has been living at Tree House for almost three years now. He was admitted in 2011 due to a contorted leg and it was discovered that he also has FIV. His leg is now healed and you won’t even notice the FIV just by looking at him, I promise.

Bertie loves to explore baskets, beds, caves, and anything that comes within sixteen feet of his general perimeter. He’s on a special diet to keep his figure in check. He loves other cats and would be happiest in a home where he could run, jump, and play right alongside them. Maybe you could even get another cat and name him Ernie-ie and they could eat special diet cookies together in your bed. Or not. Totally up to you.

In any case, Tree House waives all adoption fees on FIV+ cats and will give you a health contract that will provide free or low-cost services for the duration of Bertie’s life. He’s about six year old now, so he’s got quite awhile to go.

If you’d like to meet this whimsical stud, contact Tree House right now! Hurry! And if you totally want to adopt him but you can’t, share his story. Let’s get this bad boy a home!

Dreaming of the home he knows is out there.

Bachelor of the Week: Leo!

World, meet Leo, a loveable, huggable, soft, fabulous kitty who has discerning taste in food. Well, let me be more clear: Leo has to eat a special diet, otherwise he gets urinary blockages. Everyone has food sensitivities these days and, as far as special needs go, that’s it! Easy peasy, right? (Assuming he stays on his diet, otherwise it’s difficult peasy, you know what I mean?)

Leo has quite the story, too. He originally came from a pet store where he was brought into a home where the other animals picked on him. His owner then brought him to work where he made his home until the shop closed down. He then went to another person’s house who wasn’t able to keep up with his special diet, so he went to another home. Unfortunately, that person also didn’t keep up with his needs and, through all this, Leo has ended up at the ER several times and, possibly due to his earlier experiences,  doesn’t get on well with other cats. He doesn’t have much experience with dogs, though, so with some patience he may be able to get on well with one.

What Leo needs is a long-term, stable home with a chef that’s willing to meet his culinary requirements. As long as he stays on his diet, he always pees inside the box, but if, at some time he steps outside the box, his guardian will need to take him to the doctor to minimize his discomfort.

If you think you can meet Leo’s needs (we already know he can meet yours because he’s just that great), you can apply to meet him via his Petfinder.com profile. He’s currently being fostered privately in Illinois by a friend of mine that I met through Feral Fixers and Cat Guardians. So, get over there and have a look. Don’t let this little guy get away!

I will be your pillow, you will be my chef.
